AQUA ADVENTURESM

"Water and how we use it"


Get pumped for the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. 2017/2018 season. In the AQUA ADVENTURESM Challenge, more than 40,000 children will navigate the uncharted waters of this important resource. Find out where the water you use in your daily life comes from, and what happens on its way to you. Where will this current voyage carry you?

 

Each year, FIRST LEGO League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of children age 6 to 10. Each team of up to 6 children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO® Education Inspire Model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® elements. 

As they work, they learn basic engineering and programming skills with LEGO® Education WeDo and apply those concepts to make their model move. Teams also document their work in an Engineering Notebook and share their journey through a team Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

CREATURE CRAZESM

"Animals and their habitats" 


Swing like a monkey, fly like a bat, or hop like a frog into the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. CREATURE CRAZESM season.  Whether in zoos, on the farm, or in your own back yard, we all encounter animals in our lives.  In the 2016-2017 CREATURE CRAZESM Challenge, over 40,000 children will dive into the wonders of the animal kingdom.  What will you learn about our furry, feathered, and finned friends?


Each year, FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of children age 6 to 9.  While exploring the real-world theme, teams will use basic engineering concepts to build a model made of LEGO® elements.  They will also learn to present information through a Show Me Poster.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.


FLL Jr. Challenge
Core Values - Model - Show-Me-Poster
Each yearly challenge has three essential parts: Core Values, the LEGO Model, and the Show-Me-Poster.

The Model gets teams moving! Teams build a representation of what they are researching, based off the Challenge, and incorporate simple machines and movement into their creation.

The Show-Me Poster requires teams to illustrate their research and team journey. It provides an opportunity for them to share what they studied, what they learned, and to show information about the team and each team member.


All team activities are guided by the FLL Jr Core Values


The FIRST LEGO League Jr. season culminates with Expos where teams show off what they learned and created.
